      Hello Greasytshirt, I have a 2010 Hino 258 rollback with 259k on it.New hire used last weekend. I got it back last tuesday, and noticed that the DPR bars were at H. The truck has never gone over 4 bars. The kid said he saw no light flash for the regen.The truck still runs fine, no limp mode, etc.The check engine light has been on since i have owned. I cannot get it to regen. Any advice?

      Greasytshirt I need some help. Losing transmission fluid but can not find a leak. Is it common to leak into the radiator when cooling? No lights have come on. It also leaks coolant from behind the turbo. Difficult to get at. It's a 2008 with about 280k miles

        Often, ballasts need to be added to brake light circuits when LEDs are used.

        Please ask questions about Hinos in the Hino forum, I can't see this particular area on my phone.

      Hi, I'm working on a 2016 Hino 268 and I have received a code I've never seen before, it's p016f abnormality in common rail pressure control. Have you seen this code before? Was it an issue in the limiter in the front of the rail or the pressure regulator on the backside of the rail?

      Hello greasytshirt! I happened to be googling Hino engines, specifically the WO6TI, and your thread about you working on them from a few years ago came up. I signed up here just to ask you some questions if that's ok. Are the Hino marine engines the same that are in the trucks? I'm looking at a boat with twin 310hp WO6TI engines. If maintained are they reliable engines? Thank you !
      1. greasytshirt
        I've only worked on one pair of Hino marine engines. I've heard from others that they're very good if maintained correctly. They are not the same as in the trucks, the architecture is different.

        Thank you for your input. It hasn't been easy to find any kind of info on them. And on the boating forums everyone has a different opinion on them.

        Just like everything else, identify a parts and repair center near you and get to know the people. Hire a Hino-specific mechanic for a few hours to give you as comprehensive an analysis as possible. Investigate parts availability before buying. I was very impressed with how smooth these two engines ran.

      How do you drain the DEF fluid tank on the HINO? The message came up to replace the DEF fluid with the engine in the on position. The exceleration on the truck has decreased.
      1. greasytshirt
        Turn key on, engine off. Remove 12mm bolt on bottom of DEF tank. The computers want to see the level drop all the way down. With the key still on, add at least 2 gallons. This is probably not the real problem though, unless there's a chance the DEF was contaminated or diluted.

      How is it going, I've been reading your posts and see you know your stuff so I have a question regarding my 2014 hino 258lp . It is kicking a AT light and it stops shifting after it gets hot but it doesn't always do it and I'm about to flush the tranny any ideas on what to look for I has 250000 k on it thanks
      1. greasytshirt
        You need to have the codes pulled out of the transmission's computer for me to help. Also, is your ABS light on? The ABS HAS TO work correctly on these.
        Mar 28, 2017
      2. greasytshirt
        Also, a tranny flush is not required or recommended. Only use a fluid that meets Allison's 295 specification.

        Try posting this in the Truck forum. It might get read faster.

        It's the brake light switch, most likely. Adjust it until the plunger is completely pressed in with the pedal released. Don't break the lock.
